UN CERTAINTY has 14 pages each bearing a statement about certainty that places individuals or groups in relation views on, or attitudes toward, certainty.
Each page is cut into five horizontal strips in the manner of an exquisite corpse book. There are a possible 38,416 different statements that can be formed. ‘Certainty’ is the only word that appears in every sentence.
The book combines grey, black and white - colours commonly used metaphorically in relation to certainty and uncertainty.
The title is a play on Ludwig Wittgenstein’s On Certainty (1969), a series of notes made toward the end of his life about knowledge, doubt, scepticism, and certainty.
